the 17th of November, the recent wave of student walkouts continued
with the #ProtectUMD walkout at University of MD. Although not billed as
an anti-Trump walkout, students are demanding that members of
marginalized groups such as African-Americans, Muslims, immigrants, and
GLBT students be protected from discrimination and hate crimes. That is
in direct contravention to the Trump agenda of white nationalism.
A specific demand of this protest is that University of MD be
declared a sanctuary campus to protect immigrant students and keep ICE's
stormtroopers off campus. This would have to include specific language
barring the University of MD police department from sharing information
or otherwise cooperating with ICE to be effective. Trump's power over
sanctuary cities, counties, and campuses apparently will be limited to
denying Federal funds and contracts. With the massive budget cuts also
expected from Trump, there may be little further financial loss to
institutions that show the courage to defy him in immigration.
